It has been a tough day for the Nashville Predators in Minnesota:

First Pete Weber:

The long-time voice of the franchise was taken in an ambulance from the team hotel. Broadcast partners Terry Crisp and Stu Grimson were with him. His wife, Claudia, was en route from Nashville.

Weber confirmed the heart attack in a text message and indicated that he is comfortable and out of danger at this time.

Next David Poile:

David Poile apparently got hit in the head with a puck during morning skate at the Wild

Paramedics in #preds locker room; David Poile hit by puck at skate. He walked and sat self on stretcher; black eye, bloody nose, groggy

Poile was rolled out of the #preds locker room on a stretcher. Seemed alert which was good. Sitting up. Just an unreal scene here ...

Poile was in hallway not even on bench. Players were passing boards to boards and a Weber pass ricocheted off blade into David's face #preds

Trotz said it was above the eye, and hoped there was no eye damage. Said "it was a rocket" that hit Poile while he was in the tunnel

Didn't seem to be a ton of concern from the #preds, which hopefully means Poile is OK. Weber was standing over him as he was wheeled out

Poile being taken to local hospital #preds

Ouch. Like I tell everyone at the games down here in Texas whenever you're near a rink....keep your eye on the puck or the puck will be on your eye.

Best wishes to both for their recoveries.

The Cities have some excellent medical facilities. They're in good hands.
